First Birthday Outfit

My sister in NYC wanted a birthday outfit for her adorable daughter Griffin who turns one on April 28th. She knew she wanted a tutu and onesie outfit and wanted it to be blue but other than that did not really have an exact thing she wanted.

So I whipped up this cute cupcake number with a tie-on tutu. I usually do the no-sew tutus that you have to pull on. This time though, I decided to tackle the tieon kind as it probably is easier to get on babies who don't walk/stand yet. It's pretty much like the no-sew tutu except that I sewed ribbon to both ends of the elastic and then after tying on the tulle strips, I sewed them to the elastic so they won't move around.

End result: Super cute, black & blue cupcake tutu outfit! Now I am just wishing I had a time machine so that Ava could have this when she was one. Oh well!

PS. I apologize for the lack of posts recently but it has a been a busy month of surprise parties, furniture refinishing (post on that later), toddler birthday parties and the great sickness of 2010. Needless to say, I've been exhausted!


  1. Yeah Ava was sick for about a week and then I was sick for over a week with a HORRIBLE cold/flu thing. It was miserable! And I did not do anything during that time.

  2. ahem... Griffin's birthday is the 28th!

  3. I fixed it. Sadly I knew the date but must have mistyped it.
